I love year end top 10 lists. Movies, albums, anything. I did one last year too if you'd like to take a look. 2012 was a good year for us. Heading to Mexico, Ireland and spending a few weeks on the East coast highlight a busy year.
Going back through all of our weddings each year for this is something that I love. When I view the weddings again from start to finish I almost can't believe we were there, that we did that, that we were able to be around such amazing people that are or are not in our lives anymore. It's such a blur on the wedding day. And that is sometimes hard for me to look back on. I put a lot of stock, maybe too much, in my relationship with the bride and groom and their friends and family. I pour so much love into a wedding day and am so caught in the middle of all that love and celebration that when it's over, truly I feel sickly sad. Like viewing photos of a dear friend from college you don't see anymore. It's a strange place to be. I wonder if some of my brides and grooms think it's weird their wedding photographer is still keeping in touch with them years after their wedding.
These are my Favorite photos from 2012. Not necessarily the best, maybe some are, but first I went with photos that really pulled at me & there were a lot of those. From there I chose the ones that combine that feeling with technique.
I believe that when you feel love when you take a photo, people feel that love when they see it. So if you would, take a moment and really feel these photos. K2
